February 04, 2012
USCIS has announced that until further notice, it will not be able to approve any Form I-800 that is filed on behalf of a child to be adopted from Vietnam. Because U.S. prospective adoptive parents cannot complete the immigration process for an adopted child from Vietnam, USCIS has urged parents to not file any Form I-800 on behalf of a child to be adopted from Vietnam, and not to file Form I-800A, identifying Vietnam as the country from which they seek to adopt.
